Squidward Tentacles is Spongebob's neighbor. He is very boring and hates life. The 2006 version features a normal minifigure head, while the 2009 version features a customized head. He will soon be released in 2012 with a new torso.
He envisions himself a man of the arts, just biding time as a cashier until his big break. But the more time that goes by, the more bitter he becomes, about everything. Like work, "Here I am..trapped in a prison of high cholesterol," and life, "Why must every 11 minutes of my life be filled with misery?"
